SUBURBAN HOMES CONSTRUCTION PROJECT
Suburban Homes realized that its ambitious plan of expand- ing its business to several Southern States in the United States is possible if it is known for its high-quality homes that meet local, state, and federal standards as well as exceed industrial standards for quality.
Even though Suburban Homes did not place a strong emphasis on quality but focused on meeting industrial stan- dards, the company has realized that it must exceed all the quality standards to expand its business successfully. Although Adam Smith worked for several years in the construction indus- try, he is not specifically trained in quality management and he is not well versed with quality management tools and techni- ques. He is actively seeking help internally and externally.

You are hired as a con- sultant to develop a comprehensive quality management plan.
